By elevating the hot dog to star status on its innovative menu, Wienerschnitzel capitalizes on America's deep love for the hot dog with tried-and-true classics such as the Chili Dog, Corn Dog, Polish Dog, and more. Best of all, Wienerschnitzel provides an exceptional product and exceptional customer service at a price point that all Americans can afford.
